A word about diets

I'm on a diet.

Mom says I have to lose some weight before I can start jumping a lot in agility. I think I look pretty good just the way I am.

Anyway for the last few weeks, she's really cut down on my dog food. She gives me pumpkin and green beans to try to cover up that I'm on short rations but I am not fooled. Plus (this is a little embarrassing), all those veggies make me a little gassy. I hear these mini explosions near my tail but even though I jump around real fast I can never figure out where they are coming from.

Mikey, on the other hand, just got some new dog food, it is called "K/D". He's kind of sick, and she says he probably won't be getting any better and that we just have to make him comfortable for the time he has left. Sure, he's comfortable, he gets plenty of dinner!

So today, I opened up the cupboard door where that yummy food for Mike is kept and helped myself to a snack. Mom was pretty annoyed with me, but it was so worth it. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. She put a child lock on the door though, so I'll have to borrow a thumb somewhere. I'll let you know how this works out.

You can try the distract the human method. When your human goes into get food for Mikey, after the cupboard is open, have Mikey make tons of noise from the other room. Then you run in and chow down!

It could work.
